There are a number of shows and events associated with Black History Month around town. Although work from African Americans, Afro-Caribbeans and Africans show up on walls throughout the year here in Miami, it’s not with enough frequency as our diverse population would warrant. Maybe that can start to change. Over at University of Miami’s […]

Not to mention that fact that it got close to impossible to even get to some of the fairs because of […]

Hialeah is a state of mind as much as a physical place. A badge of honor to some, it also has been ridiculed as a wasteland. What’s great about the city (it’s the fifth largest in Florida) is that it has a bit of everything – it’s quirky and kitchy, a working class town with […]

You’ve got Hernan Bas and Jen Stark, Bert Rodriguez and Leyden Rodriguez Casanova. Passing through those […]
